I visited the Freedom Drive store today because it was convenient to where I was commuting back from. As usual Aldi's has a lot of great buys.
I like Aldi's but I was treated like a criminal. Just because it's located in ghetto--do they really need to act so rude! I was followed and stared at by employee's, only employees. I wasn't dressed in weird attire.
Nothing unusual, I promise. My pocketbook is extremely small but evidently I looked very a perpetrator of some criminal activity because certainly they acted like I was shop-lifting. Do middle-aged, Caucasian females fit some kind of profile? However the policeman on duty seemed to pay me no mind at all.
A Hispanic female employee trailed me throughout the store and when I glanced at her, she glared as if I'd insulted her mother or something. I truly understand why more and more people order everything on line. The cashier was okay rather cool, not too friendly. I spent $193.61--my exact total.
'm not trying to make this about race but evidently it is It is not because it's the South. I'm from Chicago and I don't get this kind of garbage there. Please if it's because my skin is white--please post a sign. Whites Not Welcome.
I'll shop elsewhere.
